Is it okay to ask queries to a Team member on LinkedIn who is working in a company which has offered you a job, about the company culture and work before joining that company?

I got connected with a person on LinkedIn who I will be working with in a team in next company I will join. We discussed about the work Life balance and shifts, will this lead to any problems like revoking the offer letter if he shares it?

If you’ll be working with him/her then NO

Not likely but still it isn’t appropriate to question about company culture and stuff after you’ve accepted the offer
You can connect with other people but not the one’s you’ll be working with
